One reason Arsenal fans don’t like Man United

The Arsenal fans were accused of having no class by Rio Ferdinand after the match against Manchester United on Saturday. In doing so, Ferdinand reinforced one of the reasons that Arsenal fans, along with most others, don’t like United. Hypocrisy.

Ferdinand’s ill chosen words were because of the away fans giving Robin van Persie some abuse. Has he never heard Tevez getting stick? It is part of football. Everybody knew that van Persie would get stick from the Arsenal fans after he chose to abandon us for our hated rivals.

Okay, some of the chants were not nice, but Arsene Wenger has had to put up with years of taunting from the United fans because of some stupid internet rumour nearly 20 years ago, with no truth to it. So Ferdinand thinks it’s fine for United fans to call Wenger a paedophile for 16 years does he? Really classy Rio.

It just seems to be the way with United. They have Ashley Young flinging himself to the ground week in, week out and then Ferguson and Jonny Evans stating that Torres should have been sent off despite proof that Evans had clipped him.

Don’t even get me started on Fergie time and penalties. Evra claiming that Wilshere was trying to injure him when he was obviously going for the ball is typical. I wonder if they actually believe what they are saying, or if they just do it to wind people up. It’s worked on me, anyway.

    That is not enough. I also want the fans to keep on abusing wenger this time until he begins getting some common sense……

    Rio has to come out and say that sort of thing. He knows its all part of English football, mates have told me that he got his fair share when he went back to Upton Park.

    Hypocrisy is no longer the main reason why we hate Utd.

    Nowadays its more to do with jealousy. I’d kill to have 2 wingers like Young and Valencia with you know who finishing them off.

    Instead, who do we have, Walcott, Gervinho and Giroud. A long season lies ahead. In my opinion in January we should go and get Lars Bender, Zaha and Ba on the cheap. Altogher they would cost about £40 mil. Not too much to ask!

    Here here, saying what we all know. also anyone notice that man u’s emergence as a major force coincides with when sky gained tv rights for match day events ? 67-92 without the league and bang. We all know fergie would like to take the credit and he has done and great job, but he has outspent any and every team for years (30 million ferdinand 10 years ago! only 2 or 3 players since cost more than this) and has the hypocrisy to moan about man citys spending. I would love to see us win the league with our prudent spending and academy it would be a mean feat. but somehow i feel we will forever be living in hope and dying in desperation, as money has a track record of getting teams places i.e man shitty,PSG, man united, real madrid, even black burn. WE NEED a serious cash injection just for 1 season as with a few world class players it could allow our youths to develop without having the weight of the whole club on their shoulders. With a few world class plyers i reckon we could have a team that would be world beaters for years. I am not saying spend it every year but just one season to give an injection of life to a team which is going stale. Again we can only dream…

    I think that Mr Ferdinand is the last person to critisis anyone for lack of class, or is he the first as he has more first hand knowledge than anyone else I know.
    With his history I think that keeping quiet would be the best option

    Rio ferdinand is a twat! when united fans slaughtered wayne rooney when he wanted to go to city did he open his big mouth then??? or how about when ashley young was diving week in week out and he conveniently missed that but saw all of suarez dives….. pathetic media hungry mug.

    Just ignore MUnited and their hypocritical players. We’ve got a bunch of problems with Wenger and his players. I wonder if players on their own get together to do post mortem of their games.. A few glaring weaknesses I can see with Arsenal are :
    Still weak in set pieces both offense and defense. Bould have gone quiet.
    Not enough movement off the ball. The few players that tried were never fed the ball.
    Players rarely tried to go pass opponents but rather prefer to pass backward.
    Opponents always close in faster on us than we on them.
    Apparent lack of chemistry amongst players and fluidity of plays.
    Wenger does not have the fear factor on players when situations require it.
    Still hoping for a miracle though..Go Gunners!

    This time there is no RVP to save us from another worst start in 2 years. we were at 16 PTS this time last year and this year only 15 PTS. If Wenger can’t realise this, he must be crazy…

    Stop talking Rio! Every time you open that big mouth of yours, you end up in the red tops…oh wait, that’s what you want. Idiot!

    Off topic. I felt the only sliver of light from the slaughtering on Saturday was Mannone. He made some lovely saves and looked solid. Could do nothing for the goals. I feel he put Rooney off for the pen too. Knew what side he was going for(had his homework done, good lad)and forced old fat head wide.

    It is hard to sack a long loyal servant like wenger, and i don’t see us sacking him.Lets just hope hillwood, ivan and stan leave the club. then with wenger given a better amount of money and that will allow him to build a squad to win the EPL, AND CL.
    i don’t even see arsenal winning a throphy for many years to come until the 3 basterds leave.
    LETS GET REAL, IF WENGER LEAVES AND WE GET PEP, DO YOU THINK THE BOARD WILL GIVE HIM MONEY TO SPEND? IF THEY WILL. THEY COULD GIVE WENGER THE MONEY.

    United fans are all hypocrites. they slag off all other teams but when it comes down to it they are all glory hunters. the number of people who said they support man u dropped significantly between 2003-06 which conveniently they did not win a title. being an arsenal fan in itself basically shows that your mind is geneticially better than a united fan. i know about 100 united supporters but only about 15 arsenal supporters but evry arsenal supporter i know could not only name the squad but also some of the under 21s and the back room staff. ask a united “supporter” who is in their theam most will be able to name rooney ferdinand vidic and evra and i wouldnt put it past a few of them to say ronaldo tevez or owen

    The issue is not what Man U fans are saying it is more fundamental than that. The gradual erosion of squad quality by selling our best players is coming home to roost. No doubt about it. Stopped buying the promise to the future crap from the board three years ago. Players are talking by walking. Youth was going to be the success by building a team around Fabregas and Van Persie. How many of the FA Youth Cup winning squad are still at the club ? Mediocre players join knowing that Wenger will improve them. The club buy them as they cannot demand ridiculous wages….we put up with more than acceptable injuries because we cannot move them on as they are injury prone. I would rather see one really good player instead of Diaby and Rosicky in the squad. Wenger talks about the spirit within the club and to an extent this is true however where is the continuity and improvement in the quality. Players know that the best players will be sold on at the end of each year. It shows with the lack of effort and the lack of understanding in play. It takes three or four years to build a winning squad by retaining your best players.

    Three things made the defeat @ old trafford unbearable
    1. Evra – the guy who thinks Arsenal is a joke – scored
    2. Arsene yet again played Ramsey on the right wing, despite the fact that walcott was fit and had scored a hattrick some days back.
    3. Van Persie scored. Of course.

    Rio Ferdinand is a joke. Why are you wasting space and our time by posting this article. He also said that Robin showed a bit more class than their fans showed to him” . Who the f**k is he talking about us. Even the old man (SAF) said Arsenal fans were OK. This guy thinks he is a football Godfather and their team deserves to win every game and trophy .

    Don’t blame Rio and the likes for current critics,what we need is to silent them at the ground as media won’t do much at all in our team.
    BOARD & WENGER SHOULD GO!
